Welcome to SCA Shopping Made Easy
NOTICE: All merchant features we have thus far received have been displayed, we have randomized the order of the merchants we received and will be displaying them by week in that random order until we get new features! We may be posting a new list of questions for a “feature number two” headed into the future. Thank you to those who have contributed, we hope being featured has been helpful to you!
Merchant of the Week:
Longship Luxury Goods
What is your shop about? What kind of goods do you have and what makes you unique? Also, how should people best contact you?
Longship Luxury Goods is a Viking Mercantile. We cater to newcomers; we have feast gear, drinking vessels, clothing, outwear, belts, pouches and so much more to get anyone ready to be a Viking at any event.
90% of all of our product is handmade. We have unique items like the potion bottles and Viking long coats.
My website is the best way to contact. www.longshipluxurygoods.com.
How long have you been a part of the SCA?
I have been in the SCA for over 22 years and have been a merchant for a little over 4 yrs now. I started merchanting with my late husband; Eric von Steinhaus. He started the business well over 25 yrs ago and I am running it now with the help of his squire sons.
What unusual item needs to be on everyone’s packing list?
Our outerwear is amazing and will keep you warm on a freezing cold night! We have fun drinking vessels too.
What is your favorite memory of something that happened at an event?
Eric proposed to me at GWW 2016, it was amazing!
Which event is your favorite every year and why?
Great Western War was my first war when I joined the SCA. It has remained my favorite ever since.
What is the best short advice you have for any new members?
Have an open mind, go with your heart and have fun, BUT be careful. Look at everything, ask tons of questions but most of all have FUN!!!.
Do you like drinking from horns? Clothes with fur? The idea of sailing, pillaging, and raiding for treasure and the favor of the Norse gods? Of course you do! Who wouldn’t want to be a viking? Pick up some of the essential gear at Longship Luxury Goods.
